Our friends from Aotearoa and the ULMWP (United Liberation Movement for West Papua) made this short video calling for people in the Pacific (that includes Australia J) to encourage the Pacific Island Forum leaders to support a fact finding mission to West Papua. They ask us top please watch this video and send this link far and wide > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ0OtGexu-M&feature=youtu.be.
If you are in Australia please send a message to Foreign Minister Julie Bishop urging her to support the call for a fact finding mission to West Papua. She will be meeting with Pacific Island leaders in Port Moresby next week. If you are from another Pacific Island country please contact your foreign minister. Help bring West Papua back to the Pacific family.
Encouragingly, the Solomon Island Government has already announced they will create a Special Envoy for West Papua. Melanesian leaders have also made the ULMWP an observer of the Melanesian Spearhead Group. These are good starts and they happened because of people power. Let’s urge other Pacific Island Leaders to also stand up for West Papua next week in Port Moresby.
